We are excited to announce that the inaugural Waitangi Housing Expo 2024 will take place at Waitangi Sports Grounds, 6 February 2024, as part of the annual Waitangi Day celebrations.

This new addition to the Waitangi Day programme brings together a wealth of housing industry experience, information, and support, all located within the heart of Waitangi.

The Expo is open to everyone, no matter where you are on your housing journey. 

The theme for this year’s Expo is Roadmap to My Home. The innovative layout enables you to walk through Kāinga Street, a cul-de-sac of on-site houses and cabins, suppliers, agencies and exhibitors and housing-related stalls covering amenities that could improve your current living conditions. You’ll be able to access the knowledge and know-how of those with successful housing developments.

Walk down our street, explore, gather valuable information and create YOUR ‘Roadmap to My Home’

Our Kaupapa

To support the acceleration of housing outcomes across Te Tai Tokerau and Aotearoa.

The Waitangi National Trust is hosting this event to provide aspiring homeowners, and housing developers with a guide of how to develop housing.

There’s no better place to hold this housing expo than on the national Treaty Grounds where Te Tiriti o Waitangi was signed and discussions of equity, partnership, protection and reciprocity were held, and still are.

Waitangi is a place to have significant conversations that are important for the country and it is a place to come up with solutions.

Ready to start your journey?
